MGB miss fire

Saturday, June 21 2014, 06:14 PM
Hi hope someone can help me with a couple of little issues with my mgb, so here goes:

1. When taking my foot of the accelerator the revs are slow to drop back. I have changed dashpot oil to 3 in 1 but its no better

2. I have a miss fire at 32k which goes away at about 34k i don't have points but one of the accspark distributors

Mixture on the car is fine and timing seems good also car runs well and ticks over fine

any ideas please let my know :)
